The Lincoln Center Presents an Evening of Culture and Heritage with Fiesta Mexico Americana Featuring Los Lobos
Celebrate the vibrant heritage and culture of Mexican-Americans, as Grammy-Award winners Los Lobos and dancers from Ballet Folklorico Mexicano come together for the multi-media production of Fiesta Mexico Americana at the Lincoln Center on January 27, 2016.
This special, one-night performance will highlight notable achievements and contributions of Mexican-Americans through lively songs, dances, and film. Audience members will be taken on a cultural journey, featuring both traditional and contemporary elements and styles.
Many people love singing along to Los Lobos' chart-topping single, "La Bamba," but three decades later, the group has continued to evolve by blending genres to create music that's truly unique. While a lot of their songs are influenced by traditional sounds, Los Lobos also integrates a bit of country, rock and folk into their music and lyrics, giving them an original style that has even earned them the chance to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Ballet Folklorico Mexicano artistically expresses Mexico's traditional and contemporary culture on stage with regionally-inspired dances, colorful costumes, and instruments. Their performances bridge the gap between past and present traditions, while also celebrating and sharing their heritage with others.
The performance beings at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for Fiesta Mexico Americana can be purchased online or at the Lincoln Center Box office, located at 417 W. Magnolia Street in Fort Collins.
